    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone, even if they’re not interested in politics. I’ll admit it, when I first signed up for AP American Government, I wasn’t too psyched. Nothing about politics interested me, even in the slightest. But, the material and learning about how the country that I am a citizen of really functions really intrigued me. I found the material to be extremely easy to grasp, and the concepts were almost a bit too interesting. I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat even when doing homework at 11:30 PM, reading about how the election process works for selecting a new president. I, honestly, loved AP Government and would recommend it to anyone I know.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights would definitely be the conversations we had as a class about the presidential election, and the way government works in general. We had the most lively debates about the candidates and the parties, and what we thought they could fix or what they were doing that was just right. I found myself excited to go to class, even if we had a test because I was so interested in the material that I just wanted to see what I knew. The constant debate and the wealth of knowledge my teacher had astounded me, and as I look back on that semester, it is one of my favorite classes I’ve ever taken, because of the debates we had.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Pay attention. Do not sleep. While the lectures about the Framers may get a little boring from time to time, and the constant circling back to the Constitution may seem pointless, you need those small connections for, not only the tests for the class, but the midterm, final and AP exam. Take diligent notes, even if you’ve heard the same information twenty times since the beginning of the class. The more you write the information down, the better you will remember it, and the better you will do in the class. The class is all about immersion in the material. Do not play yourself by falling asleep or losing yourself on your Twitter timeline. Pay attention and the class will be something you will never forget, in a good way. For studying, read those diligent notes that you’ve been writing, and use your AP Review book! That thing has so many connections and it covers the material beautifully and in a way that you can understand easily. Trust your teacher and what they say; even the small things that don’t seem important, write them down. The best way I found to study was to actively participate in the conversation of the classroom. Don’t be afraid to speak up or ask questions, because when you go home and review, you’re going to remember those questions and statements, and they’ll help you during the test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I always thought learning about government and politics was extremely boring, until I took this class. I found it very interesting and never once did I dread going to class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about all the different branches of government and how they function. The highlight of this course was most definitely having Mr. Lazurus as my teacher. I have never had a teacher that sparked my interest in a topic from almost nothing to extreme curiosity.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be intimidated by government and politics. The information in the course is very useful and is very interesting. Especially during an election year.
